It's Sunday... That's The Best I Can Come Up With

I am still tired. Boy is this parenthood thing work. Iggy is a great sleeper, during the day. He is also a great sleeper at night; if I am sleeping with him in the recliner. Otherwise, he likes to cry in his own bed. So now, my back hurts and I am worn out. The bad thing about not actually giving birth is that I do not get that shot of God given espresso that you get to help you get through the first week after giving birth. Double-edged sword.

Along with the fatigue, is that panicky feeling of, "how do I cope when Mr. Clean goes back to work and I have no one here to help and I need to continue to educate my children?"

I want my Mommy. This is hard work.

My Heart just breaks for you. If I wasn't going on such a once a life time trip and there wasn't so much to do before I go, I would be there with burp towel and rash cream in hand. I HATE that I am missing this time. I have been there to help my baby with every other baby you have brought home. I am missing Iggy's first month. Why is it whenever I plan something that I really want to do, something equally important pops up? I don't like having to choose between two different locations. I love you and I will keep you in my prayers. Mommy

Like Dori says in Finding Nemo, just keep swimming. I am continuing to pray for you. Just take one day at a time (or minute by minute). God knows what He is doing. He won't leave you now! Remember, I am only a phone call away.

Hmmmmmmmmmm, I love the image of God given espresso...I'm a coffee nut and that spoke to me on so many levels. God is bigger than tired. Hang on, even if by a finger nail.
